Amiga & AROS Always wanted to own the IP and trademarks of one of the most innovative computer brands in history? A brand carried by a computer which was easily ten years ahead of its time, capable of multitasking (in colour) with multiple resolutions displayed at the same time, while Windows were still windows and the Mac couldn't hold more than 8 pages in its word processor on its single-tasking monochrome operating system? Yes, Bill McEwen's Amiga, Inc. is selling the Amiga trademark and all associated IP. It's not like the guy was doing anything with it anyway.

I think Commodore Gaming is gone under .. I got an email the other day about buying the last of their Commodore PC cases ..


Last spring Commodore brand and Commodore Gaming were sold to a chinese electronic manufacturing import-export company called ASIARIM (based in Hong Kong China if I remember well).

Here are the terms of the agreement:

I have heard also that only the management of Commodore Gaming was left in Netherlands continuing their activities, and the changed name to "Commodore Consumer Electronics".


European Sales Office :
Commodore Consumer Electronics Haerstraat 125 7573 PA Oldenzaal The Netherlands
Phone +31 541 573 950 Phone +31 541 573 910

But reaching the site says still "Under Construction"...

Also Altman from CommodoreUSA announced last september he had purchased from ASIARIM the ownership of the rights for the name Commodore in the United States.

This continuous buy and selling of computer firms and license trademarks is really like a venture capital TV soap-opera!
